The Tarot Apothecary

discover the herbal wisdom of the tarot

 

The tarot is not just images on cards but stories of the stars, counter-cultural messages, and hidden hermetic philosophy leading us on a path of self-discovery and healing.

You live an intersectional life - your tarot and healing practice should reflect that.

One of the most valuable aspects of the tarot is its intersectionality. In The Tarot Apothecary we’ll look at traditional meanings of the cards along with their astrological correspondences and elemental nature to help us make connections with the vibrant world of plant healing.

Tradition affirms what so many of us have been trying to reclaim - a complex intersectionality of healing work. The tarot is not just images on cards but stories of the stars, counter-cultural messages, and hidden hermetic philosophy leading us on a path of self-discovery and healing. Applying the powers of our deeply personal intuition to interpreting the tarot guides us beyond the framework of tradition into new visions of inclusivity and storytelling. Tarot is a practice that survives and thrives hundreds of years after it’s creation because it is so adaptable and useful in its ability to change and shift for the needs of each new generation of tarot reader.

What The Tarot Apothecary Is + Is Not

It’s important to highlight what this course is not. In The Tarot Apothecary you will not be taught how to diagnose in any way, shape or form using tarot. Nor will you be taught magickal cures to all that ails you or how to become a tarot reader or an herbalist. There isn’t any fatalism or binary-only options within this course that paint the world and your life as pre-determined and limited (there’s enough of that going around already, thank you very much).

What you will be taught in The Tarot Apothecary is far more valuable. You’ll be taught how to observe your inner workings with the tools of plant and card. In turn, you can help others do the same if you are called to serve as a healer. You’ll learn how to connect with the tarot as not only a tool of divination and self-reflection but one of healing. The tarot is very good at describing hidden needs, elemental excess and lack, and patterns of the personality which affect our health. You’ll be shown how to honor the wisdom of your body and your intuition to help you make choices regarding your wellbeing that is centered in the uniqueness of your needs. Finally, you’ll learn how to interact with the tarot as a living materia medica full of plant wisdom and star knowledge to incorporate into your healing practice.


 

I absolutely love your class. It came at the perfect time. I've had a tarot block for about six months. I would stare at the cards and feel nothing. I decided to do a tarot reading asking about how to read tarot again. The next day I found Tarot Apothecary in my mail box. I'm reading my cards everyday and connecting with them on a much deeper level since starting class. - H

Alexis J Cunningfolk

The world of tarot and herbal healing have been intertwined for me since day one.

I’m an intersectional herbalist, magickal mentor, and weaver of remedies who was lucky enough to have herbalism and tarot come into my life at the same time. Through my practice I've learned that the tarot, when combined with the wisdom of herbal medicine and magick, is a profoundly powerful tool of intersectional healing.

And we need more tools that are as complex and radiant as we are.

My intersectionality, and the reason I do the work that I do, arises from my lived experience as a nonbinary queer, a mixed-race womxn, and a practicing witch. I'm sharing this work with you because I think we all deserve the tools that help us to be who we are in all of our wisdom and complexity.

I hope you'll join me in my circle of tarot readers and healers looking to discover just how wild and liberating our magick really is.

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
I'm brand new to tarot. Can I take this course?
If you are brand new to tarot I recommend taking this course along with investing in a course and/or book for beginners. Check out my resources section in the syllabus above for my recommendations on beginner's courses.
I don't know anything about herbalism. Can I take this course?
I recommend having a working knowledge of herbalism before starting this course. You don't need to be an herbalist but having a couple of good materia medicas and a passing familiarity with the basics of herbalism would do you well. Check out my resources section in the syllabus above for my recommended books and courses for beginners.
What do I need for this course?
Your curiousity, a pen and notebook, a deck of tarot cards, a couple of good materia medicas (that is, books full of profiles on healing herbs - check out my resource list in the syllabus above for recommendations), and your favorite tea cup.
Do I need a specific kind of tarot deck? Like the Herbal Tarot?
No, though I do recommend using the Pamela Colman Smith (PCS) tarot (aka the Rider Waite Smith, Waite Smith or RWS tarot). It's a keystone tarot meaning that if you learn to read with this deck you'll be able to read with most others. It aligns well with the traditional astrological correspondences of the tarot (which are important to understand when connecting the tarot to plants). There are many variations of the PCS tarot if Colman's original art isn't quite to your taste. If you don’t have a PCS deck, you can still work through the course just fine. Use whatever deck you find most inspiring and adapt the course material as needed. If you do have a PCS deck but don’t use it regularly, I recommend pulling it out for this course.
What about gender? Do you talk about masculine and feminine aspects of the card?
The Tarot Apothecary is a binary-free course (woohoo!) and I don't use labels of "masculine" and "feminine" in my practice as I don't find them to be useful labels or easily applied to the complexity of lived experience.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
